Does sensory nerve problem in ear can be cleared with out operation or using a hearing aid.
No, sensory nerve related issue is not corrected by medicine or surgery, or even hearing aid also. But the progression can be prevented or slowed down by wearing a proper digital hearing aid. All anatomical and physiological changes takes place with aging, no one can preclude it, as it is a natural process.

How to Overcome Snoring

MBBS, D.P.H
General Physician, Gurgaon

How to Overcome Snoring

1. Loose weight: Can reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease or even stop snoring.

2. Exercise can also help to stop snoring: As well aiding weight loss, exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring.

3. Quit smoking: Smoking irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause snoring.

4. Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing.

5. Establish regular sleep patterns: Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it. 6.Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose, rinse sinuses with saline before bed. If you have allergies, reduce dust mites and pet dander in your bedroom or use an allergy medication. Pt nasoclear nasal drop inboth nostril before sllep.

7. Keep bedroom air moist: Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help.

8. Change your sleeping position: Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. Sleep on your side instead of your back.

9. Try an anti-snoring mouth appliance.

10. Throat Exercises to Prevent Snoring

a. Repeat each vowel (a-e-i-o-u) out loud for three minutes a few times a day

b. Place the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth. Slide your tongue backwards for three minutes a day.

c. Close your mouth and purse your lips. Hold for 30 seconds.

d. With mouth open, move jaw to the right and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on left side.

e. With mouth open, contract the muscle at the back of your throat repeatedly for 30 seconds.

Dear this is mainly due to the dryness of the mouth, this happens when mucus production decreases in the mouth, to regain the vitality of the micus you need to improve iron rich diet on daily basis, avoid carbonated drinks and avoid salty and spicy food, this will harm you further.

I have been experiencing nose bleeding from last 2 days. I tried various home remedies but didn't work. What to do now? Please help me.

PG Hom, London, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Hello dear, the commonest cause for nose bleed is dryness of the nose mucosa or infection. In case of dryness of the nasal mucosa, you can apply regular coconut oil inside your nose twice a day. In case of infection, it will have to be evaluated and only then a suitable antibiotic can be suggested.

You need to undergo two tests. First is called throat swab for culture and sensitivity to find out the bacteria causing infection and antibiotic effective to cure it. Second is called videolaryngoscopy to view your entire throat and any condition which may have missed in routine clinical examination. You definitely stop smoking and tobacco chewing if you do. Avoid spicy fried chilled junk food. Regular warm salt water gargles will help.
